President Lukashenka may form new government of technocrats

Belarus in focus

The Belarusian Government has resigned in the view of the newly elected president. Analysts have regarded Kobyakovs Government as the anti-crisis government formed to overcome difficulties of the pre-election year. Despite the failed forecast of socio-economic development and economic recession, the Kobyakovs team has managed to preserve monetary and financial stability at an acceptable level. However, bearing in mind the Belarusian authorities aspiration for a new loan from the IMF, the new government may be formed from technocrats.
